Breakdown by country? Alright, first of all Europe is NOT a country. Second, they could have done better by finding out how many were sold in South Korea no matter how small the percentage is as this is their home country and where the phone first launched. And last, the author should not have commented on the comparison with the sales in US. The US has more people and therefore sales would be naturally higher even with a lot of competition.
Iphone 5s should compere to all android like galaxy s5
So grape is the same
Gelvin - Maximus, 23 Apr 2014Still not impressive. Remember, 125 countries vs only 60 countries and also remember cheaper a... moreNo, not cheaper at launch, at least not in many developing economies, here in South Africa I got my GS4 32GB Exynos Octa for R8450 ($845) on launch day, the GS5 32GB Exynos Octa is R9800 ($980), is that cheaper? Not at all.
It hasn't been a month yet since S5 arrived yet its already past the 8million mark, that is impressive, another 2weeks and it should be at around 12million.
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2014I was expecting more. seem like people really disappointed with S5Then what more do you want?
I also think there was a couple things Samsung could have done better.
However as far as what it has goes and some of the more underlining changes it's about the best there is.
And as an upgrade from it's predecessor "S4" it's a larger update in comparison to others like Z2, M8, 5S, and so forth.
On the other side I would have to say the biggest surprise was that Samsung stuck to 2GB ram. Not that it really effects the phone that bad, but still.
I mean they have had 3GB for a bit now, any phone using 3GB is probably using a Samsung chip, and they almost have 4GB released. Does not make sense.
Another thing is amazing stereo speakers. They have done it in the past. The Omnia HD was about the best speaker phone for a while. And now it's becoming more popular. Better yet quad speaker if implemented properly. Nokia did it, but they seemed slightly muffled. As long as it can be very loud and still hit crystal clear high contrasted notes.
One other thing. Not only does everyone use their ram chips, but they use Samsung memory chips as well. Why are they not releasing 64GB version? And since they are the leaders of memory chips they could easily afford to be bad A**es and just make the 32GB the base version. Or be truly amazing and just make 64GB version base and come out with the 128GB version they could have already.
I was expecting more. seem like people really disappointed with S5
DiegoBionic, 23 Apr 2014WP Fan here! Lumia rules! :)S5/Android definitely better based of technology, functions, and abilities. But Nokia Rocks.
Gelvin - Maximus, 23 Apr 2014Still not impressive. Remember, 125 countries vs only 60 countries and also remember cheaper a... moreSo not selling quite as well as the S4 means it's still not impressive numbers?
Especially compared to one Iphone as opposed to Galaxy fighting every other Droid?
Plus initially a lot of people hated the S5 and dogged the living heck out of it giving it bad name.
Anomynous, 23 Apr 2014Its hard to imagine how that thing can sell so well, its the last phone i would buy. I still r... morethe note was a crap phone had alot of issues
dont you think a tech Giant would have sorted these bugs out??????
i love this phone i just purchased it in Panama....waoooo great eventhough you guys dont mention latin america (central America)
SAMX1X, 23 Apr 20141080p is enough, who need QHD, Print Your Name Here _______________.Hi, I'm Anonymous, and I'm printing my name.
Samsung Galaxy S5 is not a good h/s..So Dn,t buy it. According to my adivse Ap
On a side note, I love how that graph implies Europe is a 'country'.
And it's horribly made. Other than that I think the SGS5 exceeded Samsung's short-term sales expectations.
RUBBLISH these is lots andriod in china more than ios is low I know usa show off not winner usa talk rubblish
SAMX1X, 23 Apr 20141080p is enough, who need QHD, Print Your Name Here _______________.I agree totally. Can anyone please tell me what difference anyone is going to see betwen 1080 and 2K, let alone 4K, on a circa 5 inch screen? I won't hold my breath waiting. Maybe at 24 inches+ but that would be a little bit big to use in a phone!
MATHS, 23 Apr 20140.7% of sale
For every 1000 NEW Android being sold 70 of those are S5
as 0.7 is less than ... morePlease read the article again.
In one week, S5 sold enough to account for all the android phones sold do far. That's compared to months and years of phones sold altogether.
Sizz, 23 Apr 2014S4 did 10million in its 1st month NOT week.Still not impressive. Remember, 125 countries vs only 60 countries and also remember cheaper at launch as compared to S4. So tell me again, is this impressive?
